Dental Crowns & Bridges
Do you have a decayed or otherwise vulnerable tooth that can’t be repaired with a simple filling? You may require treatment with a crown. Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including metal, gold, porcelain, or zirconia.
When you come to Mor Smiles for help improving your oral health, we’ll carefully assess your needs to determine what kind of crown is right for you. With a restoration made from one of these durable materials, you can look forward to enjoying great results that last for years to come.
For patients who need to fully replace one of their teeth, a good solution, besides an implant, is often a bridge. Your bridge features a prosthetic tooth plus one or two abutment crowns. These abutment crowns are placed over the healthy teeth around the gap we’re filling and stabilize your entire restoration.
Has one of your teeth become sensitive to hot or cold foods, or do you experience pain when biting down or chewing? There may be a problem with your tooth’s nerve. Harmful bacteria or an injury can both result in an infection that can kill the nerve and cause these kinds of painful symptoms.
When this happens, having your tooth’s nerve removed is essential for saving your tooth and the root anchoring it in place. This is done with a procedure known as a root canal. During your root canal, Dr. Moriarty cleans out the inside of your tooth, removing both the pulpy material making up the nerve as well as all traces of infection. Your tooth is then filled with a safe, biocompatible material known as Gutta-percha and permanently sealed with a protective crown.
For years, metal fillings were the best solution for treating cavities. But today, the new choice for most dentists is tooth-colored fillings. With tooth-colored fillings, we can help you improve the health and strength of your smile while also preserving its appearance. To learn more about the benefits of tooth-colored fillings, call our office to reserve an appointment with Dr. Moriarty.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
For most people, your wisdom teeth begin erupting between the ages of 17 and 21. It is estimated that more than 85% of patients in the United States eventually have their wisdom teeth removed, and it is important to consider the pros and cons. Dr. Moriarty will conduct a thorough evaluation and help you make an informed decision. In the decision is made to have one or all of your wisdom teeth removed, Dr. Moriarty has completed advanced training in dental extractions and other surgical procedures. And, he is able to offer all patients the comfort of IV Sedation without the hassle or added expense of a specialist referral.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you have missing teeth you need to replace, our Lititz, PA dental office helps you complete your smile with a removable prosthetic. Our options include partial dentures and full dentures. The option that’s right for you depends on the number of teeth you need to replace. A partial denture replaces a few missing teeth while a full denture replaces an entire row of teeth. During your consultation, Dr. Moriarty helps you choose the prosthetic that’s right for you.
